With the increasing use of mobile computing devices such as PDAs, laptops, and an expansion of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), there is growing interest in optimizing the WLAN infrastructure so as to increase productivity and efficiency in various colleges and office campuses with carrying out a cost effective infrastructure model. This paper describes an indoor propagation model which can be used to predict the signal strength taking into consideration propagation path losses and a comparison with an existing propagation model is also implemented. Simulation of an optimum ubiquitous Wi-Fi network area plan for R.V.College of Engineering campus in bangalore is also implemented.
